Hi folks (and Carsten in particular!),

I have just started playing with org-mode and have to say WOW!  What a
fantastic tool!  The more I use it the more I like it!

I am puzzled about something tho' that may be just due to my level of
experience with the tool.  I am using 6.28b and from the documentation,
it seems that the Meta-Left and Meta-Right should act on plain lists as
well as headlines; that is, should demote/promote just the current
level, not the children, which you use Shift-Meta-Left/Right for,
correct?

Here's what I see - if I have:

1.	item 1
	1.	item 2
	2.	item 3

and I promote (Meta-Left) item 2 I see

1.	item 1
2.	item 2
	2.	item 3

If I then demote (Meta-Right) item 2, I see

1.	item 1
	1.	item 2
		2.	item 3

Where I would have thought I would see this using Shift-Meta-Right, and
for Meta-Right should have returned the list to the primary state.  Does
the structured editing not work this way for plain lists?

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve,

you are right this is an inconsistency.  Structure-editing
plain lists always does do the entire plain-list-subtree.

I distinctly do remember that I had a reason for doing it like this.

I can unfortunately not remember what this reason was.
Part of it may be handling different bullet types.

Fixing this would require more focus time that I have
on my hands now.

- Carsten
